After I left the shop and thought about the few hours I spent there I think the experience started the moment I entered the street the business is located. Coming off a busy vehicle strewn road the deadend street itself is light filled and clean, flanked by a mix of well kept multi storey residential and commercial older style buildings presenting a lovely chilled scene. The shop itself is well decorated, crossing a green threshold you are greeted with a relaxing atmosphere featuring walls lined with bottles of rice spirit infused with fruit and herbs and jars of coffee and tea.
The staff are friendly and have a really sound knowledge of what they were offering. If you want to try the spirits you can either choose from the suggestions on the menu or make it up yourself adding a bit of this and that, the number of variations would run into the hundreds and all for the same price of D29,000 per cup (about the same size as a sāke cup). The drinks themselves were different and not the type of thing you just throw back, more something you sip away at. The shop does serve food after 6pm (on the day I was there), had the green paypaya salad with chicken which was tastful and refreshing. Products can be purchased to take away and having brought some Robusta coffee beans roasted with butter I left thinking I will have to come back.
